HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s secretary of the state says she does not have the final vote totals in the disputed governor’s race because of a delay in the state’s largest city. Both Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley have claimed victory in Tuesday’s election. Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz  had intended to announce the final tally Thursday afternoon. Instead, she said she still had not received the final count from Bridgeport. On Wednesday, Bysiewicz said unofficial returns showed Malloy defeating Foley by more than 3,000 votes out of more than 1.1 million cast. A ballot shortage caused problems with voting in Bridgeport. There were long lines and some people voted on photocopied ballots.

    I wonder how much it cost to convince the registrar to not order enough ballots so the person they wanted would win?

  2. Gail Hoxie says:

    As soon as this is official, and it appears to me from all that I have read that Dan Malloy will win by 4,000 votes, it would be a travesty and disrespectful act to the State of Connecticut if Tom Foley tries to sue that state of Connecticut. Is he trying to get the money he spent on his campaign back? Unbelievable.

    1. Gail Hoxie says:

      Tom Foley has come to a just conclusion and has eloquently stated his efforts to arrive at the truth in numbers. I give him credit for not prolonging this after a thorough examination showed Dan Malloy the clear winner.
